The Old Lock Up Gallery Open Event

This year already there have been lots of exciting events at The Old Lock Up Gallery, including exhibiting artists, sales of their work and the beautiful shows. And there’s so much still to unfold here at the gallery this year.

At the moment  there is the 2nd artist in residence of 2023 – Tansy Lee Moir – she’s spent almost a week working in the space and it’s so good to see her using the opportunity to it’s fullest. Tansy’s beautiful treescapes will be featured in the next 2 shows: The first of which is our annual Open – OPEN 2023.

The opening of the exhibition is on the 14th May from 2-5pm. For a brief overview click here.

Once the show has opened there will be a full catalogue of the work available to view and purchase via the website. It’s promising to be a great show – full of diversity: there are 32 selected artists exhibiting with us.

In other news  the call out for work for The Secret Postcard Show has begun and you’ll find all of the information via the website here.

Lastly, after the fulfilling experience of their first show of the year – Selene – they will be bringing together art exhibitions which thematically explore the complexity and richness of life via creativity, art and it’s symbols.

The Summer show will certainly be doing so – Dara – Tree of Life will open on 18th June. A callout was held  for artists to submit their work, with over 80 artists sending submissions.
